This 9'-6" tall HighRise Habitat with Vertical UpRiseTM, is the first in the 60" tall base units with another 4'-6" of top section. A total of three sections come to your door, ready to bend and install.
Along with the over 125 square feet of surface area, this deep water crib unit comes with an additional baitfish puck that snaps high on the black trunk. Weighing approximately 40 pounds, this steeple of habitat will soar into the sunlight, gathering fish of all varieties and sizes. You have now plunged into the magnum series of artificial habitat structures, this thing is big!
The HighRise Habitat units cannot fall over because of the Vertical UpRiseTM built right in. Steep slopes, not a problem with the perfect balance of shade, food and tight spaces to hide. No tools, parts or hastles. This truly is a giant, covering 2-6 times the area of other products availble standing only 3'-6' tall.
As in all of the HighRise Habitat line of magnum tall structures, installation is a snap. Bend the multitude of limbs that range in size to your perfect desired shape. Pieces from 18" to 60" and widths from 1/4" to 4" wide. Next, pop in the baitfish puck and twist on the top section and thats it. Push, shove or toss this oasis of habitat into the depths, being assured it will stay standing tall in any bottom conditions with the integrated Vertical UpRiseTM lift system.
Recommended for depths over 12 feet, you can now create a realistic landscape of cover, with an array of shapes and sizes of Fishiding habitat. Set units from deep and steep, to mid depth and then into shallow water for fish to utilize like a roadway.
A variety of complexity is key, along with the benefits of depth choice fish have to roam throughout. "Fish want something well above the lake floor and they like to choose the depth they want to hold while remaining close to the structure. The branches should reach from every depth of the crib in every direction and at every possible angle. If your finished crib looks even vaguely tidy, it needs more work." Eric Engbretson, underwater fish photographer "Why fish cribs work and why they fail"
When open, this column of cover will boast a 9'-6" diameter at the base, soaring up to almost 10 feet in height and over 200 square feet of shade with food from bottom to the surface.
Depending on boat size, it may be easier to pre-bend sections on shore and then tie up the limbs with a string. The limbs will spring back to the shape you bent when string is removed, after joining sections together on boat. Either way, from shore or in your boat takes 5-10 minutes to install from start to finish.
